George and Jane (Helt) Pearl’s son Stanley continued to live in the Morrow County, Ohio area and later he moved to Mount Vernon.
Pearl Family – Alice (Wintermute), Stanley, Irene, Les, and Anna
Stanley married Anna Sensel and had three children:
1. Irene born about 1903 died in 1929 in childbirth. She married a Charles Higgins. She is buried in the Saint John’s Cemetery in Mt. Vernon, Ohio.
2. Alice born about 1906 and died in 1986. She married John R. Wintermute.
Here is the tombstone for John R. 1904-1968 and Alice J. 1906 to 1986, Wintermute, in Canton, Ohio at the Sunset Hill Masonic Garden Cemetery. It is on Find A Grave and listed as Sunset Hills Burial Park.
3. Les born about 1909 and died 1990. Lester changed the spelling of his last name from Pearl back to the original Perril.
Here is a Memorial Record showing the death of Anna Eliza Pearl, followed by more information about William Stanley Pearl and Anna.

I got curious as to where this cemetery was located and it is definitely south of Mount Vernon on Hwy 586 on Martinsburg Road. It is out by the Mt. Vernon Country Club. I did not travel this road when visiting Mt. Vernon for a second time so that is why I missed it. Of course, I was looking for Keller surnames not Pearl or Wintermute.
I will offer my theory of who is in this photo. It is Jane and George Pearl on the left standing in the background.
Stanley is in the foreground on the ground and to his left are his son, Lester, and wife, Anna. Maybe the lady in the center and large man to right are Anna’s parents? So I got only two people correct. HA!
UPDATE January 26, 2015: Richard writes that it is Alice Pearl Wintermute with John Wintermute, their son, and John R. Wintermute sitting on the ground in front. Behind them is Anna (Sensel) Pearl in the middle and to her right is Stanley the large man standing on the right. Jane and George are on the left and standing. The photo was taken sometime in the 1930’s when John Wintermute was born.
Richard has notes from his grandmother that Anna was a size 0 and weighed about 90 pounds when she married Stanley. She was a pioneer for women’s rights and was trained as a teacher.
We have three generations in this photo and that is very good. I suddenly want to meet Anna and have a great chat about the women’s movement.
Two houses of the family:
When you look at the photo above of the house in Chesterville it looks like the gable to the left is part of the house but I think it is a separate building. Now look at the photo below and you can see that this is the same house.
The above photos and documents are courtesy of Richard Dana a descendant. He is a 4th cousin once removed to the writer of this post.
Richard would like to give credit to his grandmother Alice Jane (Pearl) Wintermute and to his mother Marilou (Wintermute) Dana for keeping and preserving these and many more treasures for the family.
There is more to come on the Helt/Pearl and Wintermute families. If you know any of these people or are related please comment we would love to hear from you.
